Overview



This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading.
 
Cynical quips like “Marriage: the end of hope” and “Wife: a former sweetheart” led critics to label H. L. Mencken "the country's high priest of woman-haters." Needless to say, his publication of In Defense of Women must have come as quite a shock.  Here, Mencken argues that women possess a "superior intelligence" and are “the supreme realists of the race." Man, by contrast, is a helpless romantic: "without a woman to rule him and to think for him, he is a truly lamentable spectacle."
